VAMPALICIOUS! continues where RE-VAMPED! left off. Ivy and Olivia have solidified a bond between them, which only twin sisters can share. It doesn't matter that neither knew the other existed, or that one is human and the other is a vampire. They have just found each other this school year and will do everything they can to stay together.
Now that Mr. Vega has decided to move to Europe for his new job, Ivy and Olivia and their assortment of friends band together to create a way to keep Ivy and her father in Franklin Grove. They brainstorm and decide to do a power point presentation on the pros of Franklin Grove and the cons of Europe. Throwing in World War pictures and information on the Bubonic Plague, they can't fail with their presentation. But Mr. Vega isn't swayed, though he does compliment them on the presentation of the information.
The gang returns to the drawing board, and decides if he were to fall in love in Franklin Grove, there's no way he'd want to be separated from his true love. Ivy, Olivia, and Mr. Vega are at a local restaurant and their waitress, Alice, strikes up a conversation with them. The two girls are positive that there are sparks between the adults and invite Alice, unknowingly, over to Ivy's house for a romantic dinner.
Mr. Vega quickly catches on to the plot during dinner, and informs the girl that the dinner conversation was interesting, but the date was a disaster. So the girls are at a loss for how to keep Ivy and her father in Franklin Grove. Finally admitting defeat, they decide to just enjoy their final days together and plan a surprise going-away party for Mr. Vega.
In the end though, it may be that an option they never thought possible will be the only solution to keeping Mr. Vega from wanting to run away to Europe.
This is yet another cute addition to the MY SISTER THE VAMPIRE series. It is a quick read and fun to watch Ivy and Olivia hatch one crazy scheme after another. The continuation of the series doesn't disappoint!
